Request for proposals at the Advanced Imaging Center (HHMI Janelia Research Campus) - November 2017

Dear Colleagues,
 
We are now accepting proposals from scientists who would like to conduct experiments at the Advanced Imaging Center (AIC) at Janelia Research Campus. The deadline to submit a proposal is 11:59 p.m. (US eastern time), January 15, 2018.
 
 
The AIC makes imaging technologies developed at Janelia available to the scientific community before the instruments can be purchased commercially.

Introducing iLab

iLab is core facility management software that RDI is implementing in many of the campus cores. iLab will help with scheduling, service requests, and includes tools for PIs to track their spending in the cores.

An iLab open house will be held on October 19, 2017 from 10am-Noon in the Cancer Center, room 2920. For more information about iLab, see this announcement.

Sample prep: Optical Sciences cleanroom

For materials microscopists, having a clean environment to prep samples for AFM or lithography is crucial. The College of Optical Sciences has a new website for people interested in using their Micro/Nano Fabrication cleanroom. See: https://wp.optics.arizona.edu/osccleanroom/

NEW for Summer 2017 - website updates

We have expanded the offerings of the UA Microscopy Alliance to include a number of educational features.

Film Your Research - video contest (JoVE)

Join JoVE’s first-ever “Film Your Research” video contest for the chance to win up to $3000. This contest is an effort to get scientists connected with the concept of “visual science” by making a 2-minute video featuring yourself or a lab member performing a scientific experiment/technique in the lab or in the field. Four lucky entrants will win big cash prizes, as well as bragging rights, for the most creative videos.

Call for applications for the MAS Joseph Goldstein Scholar Award

The Microanalysis Society (MAS) is pleased to announce the call for applications for the Joseph Goldstein Scholar Award, sponsored by the Meteoritical Society and the publisher Springer.  This new award is intended to promote career advancement for early career members of the Microanalysis Society, increase interactions of junior and established microanalysts, and to advance the state-of-the-art in microanalysis measurements.
